Initiation for your Destination: Preparing New Teachers for Today's Classrooms

Today’s classrooms are quite different from when I started school 40 years ago and when I entered the profession 20 years ago.  While some parenting styles are changing and cultural lifestyles are changing, teaching styles and philosophies should not be changing.  Yet, as educators are challenged with increasing achievement and closing the achievement gap for all students (Woodland & Mazur, 2015), it is imperative for new teachers to come into the profession in position to adapt to all students and families.  “Initiation for your Destination” is an interactive professional development session to help, novice and veteran educators, how to relate to today’s academic stakeholders.
